The idea of establishing a forum for Indian scientists, which would help them in publishing their researches and bring them together to discuss and find scientific solutions to the problems of the country, was mooted by Prof. Meghnad Saha, a great scientist, patriot and then Professor of Physics at Allahabad University in 1929. His views were published in the article entitled 'A Plea for an Academy of Sciences' in December 1929 issue of the Allahabad University magazine.
Thus, the National Academy of Sciences, India was founded in the year 1930, with the objectives to provide a national forum for the publication of research work carried out by Indian scientists and to provide opportunities for exchange of views among them. The Memorandum of Association was signed by seven distinguished and patriotic scientists, namely, Prof. Meghnad Saha, Prof. K.N. Bahl, Prof. D.R. Bhattacharya, Prof. P.C. MacMohan, Prof. A.C. Banerji, Prof. Ch. Wali Mohammad and Prof. N.R. Dhar.
The Academy started in 1930 with 57 ordinary Members and 19 Fellows. Over the years, the Academy has grown in strength and popularity. Today, it has about 1578 Members and 1581 Fellows including 30 Honorary Fellows and 88 Foreign Fellows. All these, include scientists from various disciplines of Science and Technology from all over India and abroad.
